Jaws. Holy fuschia hell. I know the water patrol are really good, but I can’t help but feel someone’s gonna die live on tv one day.
Got a link?
Two I followed came up as suspect sites.
WSL page is asking me to subscribe.
Sorry Trev. I was watching on Foxtel.

Great. Now I'm imagining BA's majestic snow-capped erection, upon which scores of brave men have perished

what do you care whether you're signed up or not. It doesn't cost any money.
Sorry Nick. I was using my tablet and things weren't doing what they were supposed to. Pushing links and getting ads instead of what you were after and that sort of thing.
I've used the site before by using the GStQ advice but it wasn't showing on the tablet.
Geez, even on the PC with 48Mbps download it's a clunky site.
I think the best way to watch it is on cable.

I flicked Foxtel a couple of years ago now.
Haven't really missed it.

Kayo tends to have WSL stuff a bit late in the piece. Not always but often. That Jaws stuff was sick though....watched it on Youtube.

This article in South China Morning Post today is pretty interesting, "Hainan - the Hawaii of China": https://www.scmp.com/native/lifestyle/t ... want-leave

“Riyue Bay has a terrific surfers’ culture,” Zhang says. “It’s all about slow living.

“We can enjoy the waves, go snorkelling and play music, head up in the hills and swim in the waterfall pools sometimes, or fish on an uninhabited island sometimes. It’s an unpretentious community

“While skateboarding depends on your technique, surfing requires an understanding of nature, too. Being a surfer is like being a tidal expert and a meteorologist, too: you need to read the humidity, tide and wind charts every day.”

that's pretty standard drizzle for the east coast this time of the year. at least it's not freezing cold, brown, and blowing 60 knots. not to mention dweeby styles with bunny rabbit arms. even in at that link the same bunny rabbit arms. it that a trend over there? or some genetic deficiency?

lol. check it.

Well this all seems like a pretty cheap shot at some guy on the other side of the world who's harmlessly making boards for himself and his mates.

Not to mention, his dad's website, Swallow Boats, has some good looking products.

Nah. It’s got very little to do with the board maker. It’s a shit stir by proxy. Look how quickly GSTQ returns fire with screenshots of Australia. No way he could walk away without biting down hard

Interesting ...

171.11 Serious Unsportsmanlike Interference
If the Discipline Director and Commissioner’s Office determine that an interference during an Event was intentional, unsportsmanlike and of a serious nature, notwithstanding any penalty available under Article 188 (which may include suspension from Events or an entire Tour), a Surfer will lose the benefit of counting their best Event result when calculating their Ranking on the relevant Tour (e.g. if this Article is violated at a QS Event, their QS Ranking will be effected). Notwithstanding any resulting discipline being imposed by the Discipline Director, the heat in question can be re-surfed if determined by the Head Judge that the result was affected by the Surfer’s conduct referred to within this Article.


Stepdad Charlie should read the whole rule book before coaching that kind of behaviour from Gabby.

Imagine the shit that would go down if the WSL threw that rule down, which they most probably should, but won't ... toothless cunts.
The moving finger writes and having writ moves on ... now all thy piety nor wit shall lure it back to cancel even half a line ... nor all thy tears wash out a single word of it.
